Do you have an Electricity Department? Shouldn’t IT be able to supply business that level of easy to use capability? Business Ecology • Systemic, comprehensive rethinking of business and IT • Working together to create productive and efficient organizations and ecosystems • Enables the sustainable, efficient, agile business of the 21st century
Today, IT is integral to the business IT is no longer just a datacenter, but rather an integrated and vital asset to the business • IT must drive efficiency and revenue, and provide measurable, clear return on investment. • Business must have easy, seamless access to the services needed to be successful
Business Ecology is based on clear, easily accessible technology OMG Business Ecology Initiative BPM Sustainability Open Standards SOA Cloud
OMG Business Ecology Initiative BEI Premise: • IT as simply a support organization is becoming non-competitive and obsolete • IT must evolve to be an integrated partner with business. • Focused on minimizing waste and optimizing capability across business processes • IT needs to provide business focus on sustainability, business process and optimization • Replace CIO with BEO (Business Ecology Officer)
Business Ecology: Value Statement • Optimize Resources • People, money, energy, equipment & supplies, plant, systems, space & legacy • Create sustainable business processes • Develop location independent services • Take advantage of Open Standards • Embed IT into the Business
OMG Business Ecology Initiative Vision: • OMG Business Ecology Initiative (BEI) brings together customers and vendors committed to helping IT create sustainable, open business processes Mission Statement: • Ensure message of BE is well communicated and integral to OMG Programs (BPM-C / SOA-C, GCIO) • Publish examples of sustainable business processes • Communicate successful client BE initiatives • Help Organizations adopt Business Ecology and Implement Actionable Architecture concepts
OMG and BE • SOA-C is about capturing business processes and governing the extension of existing processes to new capabilities • BPM-C is about optimizing existing processes, finding opportunities for reuse and focusing efforts on business targets • GCIO is about finding economies in processes throughout the business that can minimize resource usage without downgrading value or efficiency • OMG standards are about amortizing costs over a larger marketplace, minimize systems interoperability and portability costs to give the business flexibility and agility
What is an Actionable Architecture • Actionable Architecture: • Output of business process analysis • Includes decisions that maximize value and minimize waste • Examples: • Creation, automation or termination of a business process • Movement of an automated process to the public cloud, private cloud, or in-house computing utility • Initiating governance of a process -- computing-related or not -- to lean and/or green that process • Identification of opportunities to minimize waste (of people, computing resources, electricity, water, paper, etc.) • Reuse of existing processes in new ways to support a new business capability
